My Mantle

So my hubby made me a mantle. I had made the fake fireplace for my classroom at school and he saw it and told me to bring it home and put it up and we would hang the stockings on it. So I brought home and we put it up and he measured it and went to Home Depot and got the wood. Friday night he brought it home and we placed it on the wall and he decided it needed to be stained so we went to Home Depot again on Saturday and got the stain. He has worked on it all weekend and this is my finished product. It is so pretty and I think it is one of the best CHristmas presents. He is soooo sweet!!!!!

Won't quit playing with the tree

See momma! Pretty sparkly!

Christmas Tree

We put up the christmas tree last weekend and the kids had a lot of fun with it. John Michael got to put the first ornament on and then Rachel. Rob decided that Rachel needed to be the one to put the angel on so he lifted her and she did. She says she is the pretiest princess ever. John Michael would only let me get his picture while he was playing with the switch for the tree.
